Served on tap at Big Hunt DC.
A: this is a dim lit bar so I am not going to B.S. you.
S: cold pint glass= weak aromatics but from what I gather its charred American oak , dark chocolate cocoa nibs, smoked Wood chipped pork meat, black pepper.
T: now this is a smoked porter. Beautiful balance of smoked meats and chocolate cocoa.The smoked ash oak barrel really shines through here. Notable black pepper and vanilla bean extract. Supremely delicious.
M: a bodily carbonated porter. Nice medium body and full tasting smokey draw.
O: one of the absolute best examples of a smoked porter that I have found. Try one and buy many.
